In honor of the 4th I am going red, white, and blue! Sorry for such a late Fun-Filled Friday post. Last night we were making chocolates for my sister-in-laws upcoming wedding and I finally finished my card in the wee hours of night and was too tire to type up my post. I was a little rushed to finish which is why it's a simple card. I always hate when I am rushed for my own challenge! Make sure you check out Jen's patriotic card!

So here's what I did. I stamped the Rubbernecker image 3 times on plain white card stock. I used my Prismacolor markers to color the full image once, the hat twice and the brim of the hat 3 times. Then I cut out the hat and then just the brim, and set those aside. Next using my glitter pen I added glitter to all the white areas of the image. Then I cut and matted the image on red then blue card stock. This card measures 5"x7" so I cute the pattern paper to 4.75"x6.75" and glued that to the card base. Next I glued the matted image to the pattern paper centered more at the top of the card. Then I used pop dots to glue the cut out hat over the original hat. And finally I used pop dots to glue the brim of the hat on top of that. I wanted the hat to have a 3-d effect.

Well, I hope some of you decided to play along. Remember there's blog candy up for grabs at the end of the month! What are your big plans today? I have some shopping to do for a BBQ tomorrow. And I should pick up the rest of our mess from chocolate making last night. DH and I are debating if we want to go see fireworks somewhere. Hope you have a wonderful 4th!

Happy Crafting,

Supplies: Image - Rubbernecker, pattern paper - Paper Studio, Card stock - Bazzill, Prismacolor markers, Spica glitter pen, pop-dots, Atg gun.
